Hickoks sale?

Postby Tamarack » Fri Apr 10, 2020 4:30 pm

Anyone know if the (second) pending sale of Hickoks went thru during the off season? Any word on the new owners and their plans? Obviously the pandemic will throw a wrench into those plans but interesting to know what has transpired!

Update - spoke with staff at Saranac Lake Marina (old Dussos) who confirmed their owner was not able to reach an agreement to purchase Hickoks - thus Hickoks still on the market.

An update:
Just spent a couple days on site opening up our cabin. So empty with the campground closed.

Per Hickoks, no sale yet (including not to Swiss Marine - another rumor). However another new buyer is "in the works". Hickoks will operate everything thru the summer. Business was slow (@4pm I was the only gas customer for the day) but they were open!

Good to know! Thanks!

Are you on Lower Fish Creek or out on USL?

We are on Lower Fish Creek since late 1940s....Granddad camped at Fish Creek for years until getting a Donaldson lot. Now into 5th generation. Angled view of Hickoks across the lake.

Back from 3 weeks at camp - wonderful. Update on Hickoks - they have officially sold - closing was around Sept 1st. They finally reached a deal with the owner of Saranac Lake Marina (former Crescent Bay). New staff were pumping gas at Fish Creek while we were there. Heard they would like to bring a boat mechanic to that location if they can make some room. Definitely a "passing of the torch". The same owner now has "both ends" of the Saranac Chain - very convenient for renting canoes and kayaks!
